    Okay, I just have to remember how to connect the dots .........

    I am shaking out the GLOBAL blow off of "CONFIG_PCI" by all Maintainers,
    this includes myself, in both stable and development kernels.
    I have fond most if not all +/- 1 (as always) in IDE, a major safety catch
    in NET missing, SCSI and the rest are not scoped out yet.........

    ide is much worst than 'net' but fixable......

    ./drivers/net/Config.in

    - bool ' EISA, VLB, PCI and on board controllers' CONFIG_NET_PCI
    + if [ "$CONFIG_PCI" = "y" ]; then
    + bool ' EISA, VLB, PCI and on board controllers' CONFIG_NET_PCI
    + fi

    scsi ......... oh my.........

    sound ??

    ./drivers/*---------- needs to be checked for PCI_CONFIG dependencies...
